20 Year Celebration!

February 11, 2019 | By: Sara Soukup

This week we hosted a surprise party in honor of 7 employees who have been with All-Tech for over 20 YEARS! The 7 employees (shown left to right with Owner/Vice President Dave Helmer in the middle: Craig Gluszek, Jim Wetter, Tom Sweeney, Ron Fasano, Rich Steadman, and Tom Mandernach) were told they had a safety orientation at the office that afternoon. Once they arrived, they were brought into the ATD conference room where office, shop, and field staff were waiting to surprise them! Each employee received a special edition ATD Carhartt jacket and a framed certificate to commemorate the milestone. Memories and laughs from all the years together were shared over the lunch that followed.

When asked for a few words about what has kept him with All-Tech for so many years, Field Superintendent, Craig Gluszek shared this: “One word…FAMILY! Here at ATD we have created an atmosphere to make everyone feel like we are family and part of a close-knit team. Throughout the years we have kept things UNITED. Bumps and bruises, hitting learning curves, developing our safety culture, and bringing in new faces for continued growth are part of what have built this great company. Don and Dave have set the standard and given us all the platform to succeed. It’s up to us to carry it through, which in turn makes us a step above the rest.”.

Tim Miller was not able to attend as he is currently working on a project located in Florida, but he was able to FaceTime and share the celebration! Many thanks go out to these veteran employees for their years of dedicated service!! We look forward to many, many more years together!!

Carol's Hope

January 2, 2019 | By: Sara Soukup

Carol’s Hope Engagement Center is a 12-hour crisis intervention facility that provides support for individuals with substance use and co-occurring disorders. The center is an alternative to emergency room care and allows individuals to create a recovery plan and connect to services.

Jason Durkin, one of All Tech’s talented painters, got involved with Carol’s Hope through the YMCA in Niles, Michigan. In learning more about the facility and the amazing services they offer Jason took on the task of donating his time to paint 15 rooms and hallways at Carol’s Hope! When General Superintendent, Mike LeGood, learned what Jason was doing he reached out to his contact Pat Coennen with Sherwin Williams to see if they had any paint to donate. Sherwin Williams donated all the paint for the project and Jason all the labor!

We are so proud to have a compassionate employee such as Jason and give thanks to both Jason and Sherwin Williams for contributing time and resources to such a great cause!
